Case Study- Implementation of Automatic Meter Reading

Automatic Meter Reading (AMR) or Remote Meter Reading or Online Meter Reading plays an important part in billing processes and energy management processes. In a manual process, the electricity meters are typically read once in a month. In the AMR process, the meter reading of electricity meters can be read remotely and the meter parameters can be done at 30 min/hourly, daily and monthly basis as well.

 

In one of our implementation, we have implemented Capital make electricity integrated with RF (Radio Frequency) module and are collecting the data remotely. We are collecting three types of data from these meters:

  1. Instantaneous Data every 30 minutes

  • Cumulative Energy (meter reading)

  • Cumulative Apparent Energy

  • Power

  • Voltage

  • Current

  • Power Factor

  • Frequency

  1. Load Survey Data every day

    1. 30 min energy data

  2. Billing survey Data every month

    1. Monthly Cumulative Energy

    2. Monthly Max Demand

These data points can be viewed both by a administrative user who can have a look at all the apartment data as well as by a resident who can look at his /her data.

Please see a demo via youtube video. The youtube link can be seen at

Visibility to such an online data improves data assurance, alerts early in case of a failure and helps in billing process as it cuts down mistakes and wrong doings.
